A Windows Update Problem Solved--KB3022345
« on: May 30, 2015, 05:50:16 PM »
I was having corrupted system file problems the past few days and did a scannow and the files weren't fixed. I thought about doing a repair via the Windows 7 disk then I stumbled upon the real problem. The error message I got was exactly the same as this one.

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/575721/some-files-cannot-be-repaired/

This Windows Update was part of the last set of Microsoft updates. The administrator at Bleeping Computer said just remove this particular update but Microsoft has a downloadable fix, also. Either one would work. I just uninstalled it and it worked. No more corrupt system files.

Apparently, many others have been having corrupted file problems on Windows 7 and 8. Maybe someone here has had this problem.

If so, this could be your solution. Just make sure to do another Scannow once you remove this particular Windows Update.

Good luck!!! :thumbsup:

If I'd known you were having a problem with KB 3022345, I would have provided Go The Power's link a couple weeks ago.  He is a fellow Admin at Sysnative Forums and, with others, works on Windows Update issues.  SFCFix is a tool developed by niemiro, another Admin at Sysnative.

After KB 3022345 was released and the issue with the corrupt files was discovered, Microsoft updated the KB article with the following note:

Notice
The current version of this hotfix, Version 2, was published on May 6, 2015. The previous version of this hotfix was Version 1.005. Both versions provide the same functionality and protection except that Version 2 includes a minor update to support devices that do not contain U.S. English language files. However, the current hotfix is not a compatible upgrade to Version 1.005 and may cause an error (800F0922) if it is installed over the old version. We recommend that you install this hotfix if you have not already installed it. If you have installed the original version of this hotfix and you want the added functionality, we recommend that you wait for an upcoming version that will be a compatible upgrade to either version.

Just found the problem on both my PCs. I have removed the offending KB 3022345 and SFC now runs clean. What is my next step? I have changed my setting to ' Download but let me install etc etc etc'.

At this point, you don't need to do anything.  The revision will be issued that includes whatever this update had to support devices that do not contain U.S. English language files.

Well, if I had known about this issue a few weeks ago, I certainly would have checked it out. Nevertheless, I found it myself and everything is running smooth with no corrupt files now. :mitch:

Glad my discovery helped you out. :Hammys pint:

Windows 7 64bit machine here.  This topic has confused me.

How does one know if the update caused corrupted files? Do you have to run scannow to find out?

Or should KB3022345 just be removed if its there?

Just check the links I provided in my first post and run scannow, which is a good idea anyway because it fixes many system file errors automatically. If you find an error, you need to check the logs to see where they are located and try to find substitute files.

Scannow is a good feature of Windows.

Good luck and let us know how it goes. :thumbsup:
